Oprah Winfrey has said it would take nothing short of a word from God for her to actually run for president. While she waits on a sign from the almighty, she shared a bit of advice for anyone who is certain they’d like to challenge President Trump in 2020.
During an interview with CNN‘s Van Jones on The Van Jones Show, Winfrey shared that whoever runs would do best to take the high road.
“Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don’t believe in. Do not spend an ounce of your time on that,” she told the host.
CNN reports Trump mocked Winfrey during a campaign rally this weekend, telling supporters he’d like to run against the media mogul because he knows “her weakness,” saying running against him “would be a painful experience for her.”
When asked what she would say to the former reality star during a 10-minute meeting, the OWN owner was concise.
“I would only speak if I felt that I could be heard.”
